This came so highly recommended, I think my expectations were a bit too high. It's enjoyable, and would make a very good read aloud for certain three- and four-year olds. As I read, I kept thinking to myself, "This is SO not American."

The best story is definitely The Costume Party. ( )

Fuse #8 was very enthusiastic about this, and I did think it had an elusive charm.

Unfortunately, it eluded me. I could see how they started out as stories told to a child at bedtime and they would be great read-alouds. They're sweet and simple and delicately charming. I'm just doubtful about what age would be interested in reading them on their own. They're about the right length for a beginning chapter book, but too slow-moving and whimsical to appeal to most children in that reading range. I think if I was going to get just one "cute and sweet" book it would probably be Tumtum and Nutmeg by Emily Bearn, which has a bit more plot and substance.

Verdict: Attractive, but not to a wide enough group to justify buying it

Welcome to the magical world of Toon Tellegen, where each tender story has a dream like quality. The animals in Tellegen's world are just like us; they love parties. This collection of short stories includes 9 delectable treats ready to please both kids and adults alike. The open-ended stories have a philosophical quality that leads to creative discussion.

Each story is beautifully illustrated with pen & ink watercolor drawings by illustrator, Jessica Ahlberg. Her delightful and humorous artwork adds to the poetic quality of the stories with soft, muted shades that complement the sepia print perfectly.

The Bottom Line: The Squirrel's Birthday and Other Parties is a charming collection of sweet stories as tempting as birthday cake. Dutch author and poet, Toon Tellegen, invites the reader into his magical world filled with animal adventures. These stories are perfect for reading to your favorite youngster at bedtime. This tiny treat is sure to be treasured by those who love animal stories and fairy tales. Recommended for children in grades K - 4.

I know I am probably in the minority here but I rather enjoyed this little book. The illustrations were simple and beautiful. The stories at times had to be re-read because they have been translated. The way the story is developed is so different from the way American writers write. I felt like I was sitting in a proper English school listening to a tale. Some of the words were definately too difficult for younger children. My 8th graders didn't understand they writing because they seemed almost unfinished. Having said that let me say the following: My grand-daughter came to visit on the day I was reading this book. She will let me read anything to her, cereal boxes, menues, you get the idea. She popped up on the couch and asked me to read the story I was on "The Set Table". As I finshed I prepared to talk to her about the story, she is only 3 1/2 years old. Before I could say anything she asked me if the dragonfly was shy? I asked her why she thought he was shy and she said, he didn't eat with the ant. Now I know that my grand-daughter is not like many. She has been using words like "plethora", etc. for over a year. But if she could get that from the one story it makes me wonder if all it takes is reading to our children from the time they are born and talking to them about the stories before they can even talk to give them the head start on books like this? I would give this book a 4 out of 5. I have a friend at school who reads things like this to her daughter and I will pass it on to her. I know she and her daughter will find it as charming as I did.
